Golfing with Mickey

We celebrated hubby's birthday earlier this month and for his card I decided to stick to his favorite golf theme again. This time I used a side step style card and a coloring book image found online of Mickey at the tee. Used Make the Cut to render golfing Mickey into a paper piecing cut file and the Silhouette Cameo to cut him out.

The golf and putting greens, tee, hole and flag were hand cut. Cloud cuts are a free digital cutfile from Bird's Cards. This creative lady comes up with some of the best and useful cutting files, and always generously shares them at no cost! Grassy borders were cut using a die from Dienamics. I attached the golf ball to strip of acetate and onto the card to try to make it look like it was in flight after Mickey's swing.

Here's what the card looks like on the inside...

Lined the panels with more of the same BoBunny Double Dot cardstock I had used on the front of the card. added my sentiment together with  more grass. clouds and a golf bag with clubs.

The golf bag and clubs is also a freebie cutfile created and generously shared by Vicki on her blog, Vicki's Creative Crafting Corner. Love the design of the golf bag and the detailing on the clubs!
Hubby seemed pretty happy with his golf card, although I'm starting to feel like all the golf themed cards I've been making for him recently all look basically same. LOL...I think of "golf" as pretty boring and I'm afraid  it's beginning to show in my cards too. But if hubby likes 'em, guess I'll keep on  making 'em!

I think the golf birthday card is perfect. I especially love the sentiment. My husband is also a golfer....can you make him a birthday card too? LOL! I'm sure your husband appreciates all the work that you put into his special Bday card. Funny that my husband's favorite Disney character is Mickey....Am I showing our age?
